Tra­di­tional mus­cle car fans haven’t got­ten much love from the RC world over the years. Mus­cle car se­lec­tions have tra­di­tion­ally been lim­ited to semis­cale bod­ies adapted onto ex­ist­ing tour­ing-car chas­sis—with mixed results. Ac­cu­rate scale wheel­bases and body con­tours were of­ten sac­ri­ficed, and even when the looks came fairly close, the per­for­mance of these adap­ta­tions didn’t al­ways live up to the tough mus­cle car styling.

The off-road crowd has em­braced re­al­is­tic scale ac­cu­racy in a big way in re­cent years, so per­haps it was only a mat­ter of time un­til those same scale pri­or­i­ties fil­tered down to the on-road cat­e­gory too. What­ever the cat­a­lyst, the re­sult is that now scale-ac­cu­rate ren­di­tions of clas­sic per­for­mance cars are avail­able ready to go—fast—right out of the box. And there is no bet­ter-look­ing ex­am­ple of a scale-ac­cu­rate RTR than Kyosho’s Fazer VEI 1970 Chevy Chev­elle SS 454 LS6. Thanks to Kyosho, we all get a chance to drop the ham­mer on a 1/10 ver­sion of the might­i­est mus­cle Chevy of all time. Let’s see if it lives up to the leg­end.
